Vele Manenje is best known for her on-screen character on Muvhango as Seani Ramasha. She has the plug and the bling too. However, like those before her, Vele thrust into fame came through theatre plays. She starred in big theatre plays like How I Leared to Drive, Black Bling and Grease. In the backdrop of her newfound fame, she switched the floor to presenting as she earned gigs on SABC’s productions such as Rivoningo and Siyakholwa.

With a career spanning years, Vele has fast become one of Mzansi finest with her on-screen character on Diep City. The actress stars as Maureen. Maureen happens to be Mgedeza ‘Bra Elliot’ wife character played by Mduduzi Mabaso. One of her best scenes was when she was implicated in a love triangle with Zola character played by Sonia Mbele. In the mix of things, Maureen filed for divorce, but Mgedeza had to ask Lerato (Kgaogelo Monama) and Khumo to help me out to convince Maureen not to leave.
At the end of it, Maureen gave in to the pressure and cleaned the past under the carpet, but Zola ran away after killing one of the Mgedeza’s family members. Despite her unmatched talent, it seems as if the bubbly actress is a jack of trades and master of all.
Despite being a celebrated actress, Vele doubles as a singer and dancer. However, of interest is her side hustle that has got Mzansi talking. It has been reported that apart from her occupation, the actress cashes in from candles and jewellery which she makes in her free time.
